Club Room Policies

Resident hereby acknowledges that he/she intends to use The Cardinal Apartments Club Room to participate in certain activities, including parties, meetings, and games. This agreement is made on the date endorsed, between Resident (Lessee) and The Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University, owner of the property, its officers, employees, and agents (Releasee).

Lessee acknowledges the following:

  • A reservation of the Club Room gives him/her private use of the room from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm on the reserved day.
    • The Club Room has an occupancy limit of  15 people, and agrees to restrict his or her attendee count to this limit. Lessee understands that the courtyard, fitness center and other common areas are not part of this Club Room reservation agreement. Lessee shall be responsible for the behavior of Lessee’s Guests.
    • Alcohol, if present, is not permitted outside of the Club Room.
  • Lessee will arrive for reservation and check in with Leasing Office by no later than 6pm on day of reservation, and must remain present after signing in and during use.  No late arrivals are permitted, and reservation will be forfeited.
  • Lessee acknowledges that reservation is not transferable to another resident.
  • Lessee acknowledges that reservations are limited to one day per apartment per month.
  • Lessee acknowledges that reservation may be made up to 90 days in advance.  
  • Lessee shall be responsible for all damages and missing items related to his/her use of the Club Room. Lessee shall ensure that the Club Room is fully cleaned and vacated no later than 10:00 p.m. on the reserved date. Should the room not be returned in a clean condition, a $100.00 per hour cleaning fee will be applied to the Lessee’s account.

The Cardinal Apartments is pleased to presently offer use of the Club Room at no cost to the Lessee.

If the Lessee needs to cancel the reservation, it is required that such cancellation occur no less than 14 days prior to the calendared reservation. Such courtesy allows Residents at The Cardinal Apartments to take advantage of this valuable amenity if the reservation is cancelled. A "Late Cancellation Fee and No Show" policy will be instituted that will result in a $100 fee if the cancellation of the reservation is less than a 14-day notice, or Lessee does not arrive for reservation by 6:00 pm on reserved day.

Lessee does hereby release with prejudice and forever discharge and forbear from any attempt to recover in any way from Releasee, of and from any and all manner of action, contracts, claims, damages, loss, of any nature whatever, known or unknown, which participants now has or may hereafter have against any of them, by reason of any matter, cause or thing whatever arising out of, based upon, or relating to the activities.

This indemnification obligation applies to any and all claims, damages, suits, losses, payments, and expenses occurring during the activities. Resident agrees that Releasee shall have choice of counsel to represent its interest in any claim, action, lawsuits, or other matter relating or arising from the provisions stated in this agreement, including the defense of any claim, action, lawsuit, or matter initiated by a third party against Releasee.
